“In April, In April
To follow a thread of song.” (Dorothy Parker)
there’s no escaping the seasonal change from winter to spring, symbolically death to life, that comes in April. Maybe that’s why April is National Poetry Month.
What is poetry, anyway? Definitions vary, but we know it when we see it. Even kids can enjoy it:
"There’s a Polar Bear
In Our Frigidaire—
He likes it ‘cause it’s cold in there."
From "Bear In There" by Shel Silverstein
